A Labor of Love

Yes, I have a new baby!
And I didn’t even have to have an epidural. But I did go thru some labor pains to bring you…..my first newsletter:
{The Family Room}
The first issue is going out tonight!
You can still sign up and it’s still free.
Do you have a product or idea for a giveaway? If it’s at least $50 in value, family-friendly and something I think my readers will enjoy, please email me…I have a couple of openings in August. 
I’d like to thank Today’s Creative blog for featuring me this week. I’m honored and excited to be a part of such an amazing group of bloggers! If you don’t read this blog, you should!
Also, if you haven’t seen my video interview with The Blog Frog from BlogHer 09, you can find the link here. (Warning: Chicago was rough on my hair!)
My hubby is at his 20 year high school reunion this weekend, so I’m sippin’ my sweet tea alone. What are y’all doing?
Have a happy weekend!

The Family Room {Newsletter}

I want to raise smart kids, children who have a great love of reading and an adventurous spirit. I want them to love life and become successful adults.

But even more, I want them to develop deep character rooted in Biblical foundations. I want them to feel compassion for the needy. I long for them to find an abiding joy in tough circumstances and patience in life’s uncertain trials.

These traits aren’t inherent. Self-control is taught through practice and discipline. Peace is learned through quieting our hectic lives and being still.

The strong influence of media rules the modern home and parents find themselves parenting on accident. I have been an  accidental parent, but I long to teach my kids on purpose! 

I am not an expert and much of what you read is part of our own home experiment for character building, but I have created a new monthly newsletter, called The Family Room

Each month will focus on a character trait. There will be a variety of hands-on, family-friendly activities, crafts and service projects to help teach godly character to your kids, ranging from toddlers to teens. My desire is to build a strong family. If that’s your desire too, then I hope you’ll join me in The Family Room.

The newsletter is free and will be delivered to your email inbox monthly, beginning in August. All you have to do is enter your email address below. (Please note that I will not sell/give away your email).

I am offering limited ad space with a link to your blog/business to cover the cost of the newsletter service. Please email me if you’re interested in sponsoring this new endeavor. Ad rates are $20 per newsletter for a 125×125 ad space.
